Reception Pottery Visit
As part of our understanding the world topic, we have arranged for our reception class children to visit Westbury Pottery.
During our visit we will be exploring the role of a potter and learning first-hand how materials change. We will also be linking the visit with our expressive arts and design curriculum by using clay to create texture. We will visit the pottery in small groups to watch a pottery demonstration. The children will then work in pairs to get hands on and model clay to create models of each other’s faces. The pottery will then kindly fire the children’s creations in the kiln to be sent home with them at a later date.
Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Keay’s class will be visiting the pottery on the morning of Wednesday 8th March. Mrs Barnett and Mrs Trypanis’ class will visit the pottery on the morning of Wednesday the 22nd of March. There will be a small charge of £3.50 per child for this trip. Payments can be made by visiting Parentmail/Payment/Shop and searching for ‘Reception class Pottery Visit’.
